To do an inplace upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Professional edition, go to Settings -> System -> About then click the link Change product key or upgrade your edition of Windows.

Then click on Go to Store link.

Below is a screenshot from a Windows 10 Home laptop, price shows is $149, I am assuming it includes GST.

 

You can buy a retail version to use for inplace upgrade of Windows 10 Home to Professional. Unless, you buy a Windows 10 Professional OEM licence which is like $249.

Doing an inplace upgrade will save you around $100.

I got an error Task image is corrupt or has been tampered with 0x80041321 when saving a Windows Backup task on Windows 7.

This happened after a revert to Windows 7 after it got updated to Windows 10. Solution that worked for me, may not work for you though was:

1. Backup everything and delete all files inside C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsBackup.


2. Go to registry and export the keys inside to back it up HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsBackup then delete all keys such as:

  • AutomaticBackup
  • Windows Backup Monitor

3. Then create your Windows Backup again.
